Tuition and Financial Aid
Tuition for the academic year 2013-2014 is $28,472. Tuition also includes speech/language consult to the program for every student. An initial deposit is required to reserve space for a new student. Contracts for returning students are mailed in January and are due with a deposit in February to reserve a place. New students are accepted on a rolling admissions basis.
Financial assistance is awarded to families on the basis of demonstrated need, the number of families applying for assistance and the total amount of scholarship money available. Once financial assistance is awarded, The Summit School is committed to offering continued financial support in subsequent years, provided financial need has been demonstrated and financial obligations to the school for the preceding year have been met. A request for financial assistance information does not influence the decision to accept or decline a student for admission to The Summit School; we offer a “need-blind” admissions policy.
Families who wish to apply for financial assistance are invited to contact Summit’s Business Manager to receive the application forms and instructions. Financial assistance management is provided by SMART Tuition Aid, located in New Jersey. SMART Tuition Aid applications must be received the by March 31, 2013. After 3/31/13, financial assistance applicants are encouraged to contact the business office. Award decisions are made without regard to race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin or religion. Families will be notified in early June regarding awards.
